Adobe announces ‘Photoshop Mix’ for iPad
Adobe has announced Photoshop Mix – a new image organization and manipulation app which can sync with Photoshop CC for desktop computers and Lightroom Mobile via Adobe’s Creative Cloud.
Photoshop Mix allows you to access local files on your iPad, as well as importing pictures from Creative Cloud and social media sites like Facebook. You can apply one of several preset filter effects, and tweak the filters to taste, as well as crop and edit files using touch-based selection and masking tools.
Photoshop Mix is based on the same engine that powers Lightroom and Photoshop. The app supports layers, and files synced to Creative Cloud from Mix can be opened and edited in Photoshop CC and Lightroom Mobile (and vis-versa) This is especially useful for complex edits, where work can be started using the masking and layering tools in Mix on an iPad and fine-tuned using the more advanced tools available in Photoshop CC.
Adobe Photoshop Mix is available now, free of charge in the Apple app store, but to take full advantage of it, you’ll need an Adobe CC account.
